LISTEN: Rainbow Chan Covering Jonti (formerly Danimals)

Written by Michael Carr on August 30, 2011

Recently short listed for FBi’s Northern Lights competition, where one lucky artist will be sent to play at Iceland’s Airwaves Festival, Sydney’s Rainbow Chan recently uploaded a cover/reinterpretation of recent Stones Throw signing Jonti’s Firework Spraying Moon, entitled And Then The Sun.

And Then The Sun (Jonti Cover) by Rainbow Chan

A perfect example of her contrastingly cute and brooding sound, Rainbow manages to take what must be one of the sunniest songs to come out this year and turn it into a skittering slice of weirdness without loosing any of the charm of the original. If you’ve not seen her play live before, she uses a loop pedal and an array of instruments including 8-bit synths, glockenspiels, music boxes, thumb piano’s, and above all her amazing voice to craft subtle soundscape pop songs reminiscent of Mum and Bjork, although with a touch of early Grizzly Bear.

Currently working on new material, be sure to head over and vote for her at the Northern Lights website, as voting closes tomorrow.
